From Diagnosis to Discovery: A Cancer Mom’s Fight to Save the Sick
(Closing Keynote) Tracy Ryan’s daughter Sophie was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor at 8 1/2 months old. After watching her own daughter defy every odd medical doctors placed against her that was a result of her cannabis oil use, Tracy launched CannaKids and SavingSophie.org. Tracy has consulted with thousands of patients around the globe on cannabis use and education, and has treated over 500 patients in the last year and a half in California with her own line of CannaKids’ Honey Gold cannabis oils. With a true passion for clinical research, Tracy has successfully secured a relationship with the Technion Institute in Israel who are leading the way in cannabis research for cancer. Her team is additionally expected to start clinical trials in the pediatric cancer sector in hospitals later this year. As a cancer mom, advocate, caregiver, cannaprenuer and research pioneer, Tracy’s fire is fueled by the desire to find her daughter a cure, and all of the patients behind her, the answers they need to help end their suffering.
